Why LIVE Video Is Going To CRUSH Everything Else Online

This is totally exciting! I’m running my very first LIVE event for my YouTube channel next week! And to celebrate, I am giving away some incredible prizes!

Trust me, it’s been a mammoth effort to try and do it from little old Australia where I live – our internet here is just so incredibly bad! And finally after about 2 years of struggling with it, I am ready!

So, I am happy to announce that I will be hosting my very first public YouTube LIVE event next Tuesday at 7pm EDT (USA). Mark it in your calendar right now – it’s going to be epic – kinda like a season premiere… or something similar!

So… just to be clear… this is not a webinar, or even a Google+ Hangout…! It’s an actual genuine LIVE event using YouTube’s “LIVE” feature… not many people even know about this. It’s kinda special. You’ll see…

The topic?

“Why LIVE Video Is Going To CRUSH Everything Else Online”

Got a specific question about live video? You can go ahead and leave your comment in advance on this page already!

For each intelligent, and valuable comment, you go into a random draw for winning one of the prizes. I’ll announce everything on the actual call. But you can already go to the page and leave your question or comment there.

More info on this soon…

And no, there won’t be a pitch or anything like that on the call.

When you press the play button before the event starts, you should see a countdown timer for when the live event begins.

This is seriously going to be EPIC, and I can’t wait to share my latest findings with you. I’ve been a bit quiet lately, but it’s because I’ve been knee deep in some serious experimentation and some other VERY exciting things.

If this goes well, I might just run YouTube events on a regular basis… we’ll see. It all depends on how much you get involved really.

Ok, go check it out now…

Until then…

Gideon Shalwick

PS: Don’t forget to leave your intelligent comment (as in no silly, low value comments) already now to go into the random draw for some amazing prizes. More info on this soon…

  3. herbert gooden

    I am hoping you record this love event. I have a prior engagement
    commitment. Will you afford us a look behind the scenes, on how to produce
    a live event? Thanks

  4. edenthedjguy

    What has been the easiest cash creating thing you ever did both for the
    short and long term in your business?

  5. Brandon Mcmillan

    Alright I can’t wait

  6. Gideon Shalwick

    Hey Herbert – I LOVE that you are calling this a “love” event – excellent
    type lol! It really is so much fun and I can’t wait to share everything
    with you. And yes, it will all be recorded!

  7. Gideon Shalwick

    Hey Eden – great question… I’ll add it to the list!

  8. Gideon Shalwick

    Brandon… it’s going to ROCK!!!

  9. Terry VanNoy

    Hi Gideon! I am looking forward to your live event; I can learn from your
    experience as I explore live teaching/tutoring events for my business.
    Thanks again! Terry V

  10. Gideon Shalwick

    Hey Terry! Yes I am really looking fwd to the live event too – I can’t
    wait!!! I have some very interesting findings to share!

  11. Thiago Mello

    looking forward to see this event… I started to follow you a few days
    ago… thank you

  12. Gideon Shalwick

    Great stuff Thiago! It should be a really fun call!

  13. like fine wine

    Thank you for creating this great training. I am happy to read that it will
    be both live and recorded. Often, I watch a video more than once for the
    best learning and retention.

  14. Rob Salzberg

    Can’t wait to see what you are going to share with us Gideon

  15. Gideon Shalwick

    Hey “like fine wine” – you’re welcome! It should be a really fun event!

  16. Gideon Shalwick

    Hey Rob – same here – I’m pretty excited!!!

  17. Robert Horn

    Gideon – looking forward to this one. I would like to know what it takes to
    produce a live event – pitfalls – tips & tricks – best time to do a live
    event, etc.

  18. Gideon Shalwick

    Ah yeah, great questions Robert – will add to the list!

  19. Don Daniels

    Hey Gideon. I’m looking forward to this! I’m sure you will tell us the pros
    and cons of YouTube LIVE – specifically I’d like to know the difference
    between it and Google hangouts. Thanks.

  20. JK Mikals

    “Live” video won’t make a difference to me. I might watch .5 (that’s POINT
    5) events live to every 100 I don’t. Being able to work with MY schedule
    instead of yours is important to me. Sorry.

  21. Gideon Shalwick

    Hey Don – yes sure thing! To the untrained eye, one might not realise all
    the differences… but if you’re running a serious business… it’s
    massive! Will share more during the event!

  22. Gavin Routledge

    oooohhh… this looks REALLY interesting. Thanks for the invite! This could
    be very applicable to product launches – just as you’re doing!

  23. Gideon Shalwick

    No probs JK – live is not for everyone :)

  24. Gideon Shalwick

    Hey Gavin – VERY true – in fact I just had that VERY same conversation with
    a product launch friend of mine last week! Although, I won’t be launching
    anything for this event – just having a bit of fun

  25. Roberto Gold Puente

    Hola Gideon listo para tu Presentacion

  26. Zafar Iqbal

    OK, this seems interesting, I havea feeling we’re gonna get alot of sales
    pitches about this over the next 6 months or so…but lets see how this
    could benefit my business

  27. Gideon Shalwick

    Roberto – non comprendo?

  28. Gideon Shalwick

    quite likely Zafar haha! the best thing about YouTube Live though is that
    it’s free! You need the right gear though…

  29. Melissa Feick

    I have done some live events on google hangout and one of my frustrations
    is not being able to use my hot video camera! I do not like the look of a
    webcam, even an external one. Thanks

  30. Gideon Shalwick

    Hey Melissa – so yes, that is all fixable with YouTube live… although the
    best setup I have found so far, is actually very simple. Will show you
    exactly on the call!

  31. Sharon Beck

    I’m in California and I believe my time will be 4:00 pm. I hope I have this
    right because I want to be able to reach seniors all over the world and
    this may be the vehicle that will enable that. SB

  32. Tom Gerry

    Gideon is the leader once again. Kudos!

  33. Roberto Gold Puente

    Gidion ready for your conference on the 29th we will be there from Chile
    will be a pleasure for me I’m still on my youtube regards

  34. Maria Slaby

    Great! I’m excited to see how this differs from a google+ hangout as that
    has been my latest plan in the works….

  35. Gideon Shalwick

    Hey Sharon – That sounds about right – I use worldtimebuddy

  36. Gideon Shalwick

    Hey Tom! Thanks… but I really wanted to do this 2 years ago already. But
    the bad state of internet here has prevented me till now!

  37. Gideon Shalwick

    Hey Roberto – GREAT stuff! It’s going to ROCK!

  38. Gideon Shalwick

    Google+ Hangouts is great Maria… but a bit limited 😉

  39. James Hullinger

    I work with agents all over the country and am looking forward to the

  40. Gideon Shalwick

    Hey James – Oh great stuff – I think there would be some fun things you
    could do with this!

  41. Roberto Gold Puente

    Gideon live on youtube of this can be done with a software or a tool for
    youtube? regards

  42. Gideon Shalwick

    Yes I’ll cover those Roberto!

  43. Daniel trussell

    Can’t wait! Will you cover technical requirements for doing our own live

  44. wim3355

    Dit is heel bijzonder, als het mogelijk is zal ik het zeker zien

  45. Pete Gregory

    I’ll be at the live event! I’ve also been paying attention to Youtubes live
    event possibilities and very interested to learn more about how it works.
    I’m interested to see how this works for you.

  46. Patricia Brun Torre

    Hi Gideon. Question: about screen sharing and being several speakers (for
    ex: interview or panel discussion)? what’s the difference with G+hangout?
    Thx, looking forward.

  47. Lyle H

    What are the benefits of using Youtube live vs Google hangouts? Is the
    interaction the same, like comments and so forth?

  48. Vladimir Suhadolnik

    Curious to learn about the tech requirements, audience capacity, and your
    prediction for whether YouTube Live and Google Hangouts will possibly
    co-exist independently or be integrated OR ???

  49. Ronnie Bincer

    Why do you think Live Events via YouTube are more valuable than Hangouts on
    Air? You have less opportunity for interaction, the landing page is harder
    to find, etc. I think live interaction is key.

  50. BackToMyGarden

    Congrats Gideon, if you’re not on the cutting edge you’re taking up too
    much space! Keep leading wisely, appreciate you.

  51. Zsolt Szalma

    Hi Gideon! I am looking forward to your live event. Although it will be 1
    a.m. in Hungary. :) One question: how does this differ from G Hangouts? And
    how can I run one? OK, two questions. :)

  52. jan blount

    Once again you have my curiosity peaked. And the timing is perfect cause I
    have recently been looking at various options …

  53. jan blount

    Question: Is this primarily for those folks doing a talking head style
    video ..would it work for a teaching/demoing an art process. Being stuck
    using a webcam kind of limits doing that style easily

  54. Tony W

    This is going to be interesting.

  55. Tony Fiorillo

    You might be on to something: it’s not even broadcasting yet and you have
    15 people watching the blank screen! Looking forward to learning more.

  56. Jeff Pierce

    Congrats Gideon on your first YT event. I hope you will be covering how to
    get your vids found and viewed.

  57. This is Fit Quickie Workouts

    Tuning in!

  58. Howard Lee Harkness

    LIVE video, eh? I’ll be watching mostly out of curiosity. I have done
    videos, mostly interviews, for a couple of my blogs, and I end up editing
    them. Usually only to remove the setup and the beginning of the teardown,
    but occasionally, I have a person on the interview who asks me to remove
    some personal information. That would be a problem for a LIVE presentation.
    So I’m not sure that would work for me.

  59. Crowdfunding Dojo

    Being somewhere with decent internet speeds, but an occasionally shaky
    connection, how are you mitigating the risk of something going horribly
    wrong with the internet connection side of things?

  60. Crowdfunding Dojo

    I’m also curious how you chose the time to broadcast. Did you look at peak
    interaction times on your channel, or choose it just to be 7pm EST? What
    about west coast US ppl still being at work?

  61. Crowdfunding Dojo

    I’d love to hear how you’re planning on dealing with the 60 second delay. I
    love the idea of live for Q & A but if people have to wait for 60 seconds
    for an answer, that’s kind of a problem, isn’t it?

  62. Crowdfunding Dojo

    Unlike alternatives, YT doesn’t have an email reminder system for upcoming
    events. Are you tracking clicks to target reminders, or sending them to
    your whole list? Curious about buy now links, too.

  63. Crowdfunding Dojo

    Also (yeah, I’ve been looking at this and wondering about a lot) is there
    any benefit to using this comment system instead of embedding on your site
    w Facebook comments or a Twitter hashtag chat?

  64. Crowdfunding Dojo

    What’s interesting about this though, is that by announcing so far in
    advance that you’re building on-page anticipation and community before it
    airs in a way you can’t on Hangouts.

  65. Crowdfunding Dojo

    Prizes for pre-broadcast interaction is also a very clever way of utilizing
    this difference to it’s fullest. I would have loved it if you enabled stats
    for this video, but can understand not doing it!

  66. Crowdfunding Dojo

    I’d also appreciate if you cover how to seamlessly integrate prerecorded
    material. I’m looking at using screenshare app, but my method seems clunky.

  67. Alexandre Marinho

    One big issue of this kind of event is the lack of feedback, as we can’t
    interact with others. I’d like to see how/if you overcome this issue.

  68. Crowdfunding Dojo

    @Alexandre – What kind of interaction do you mean? People can talk amongst
    themselves in the comments here, and – barring a small delay – the
    presenter can react to questions on the video.

  69. Crowdfunding Dojo

    Seems that there *is* a reminder function, but it only seems available from
    the video search page, not from here. Search for this vid title and click
    “reminder” to be reminded by email, YT app & G+.

  70. Paris Siopis

    i do not have a question. i’m curious and excited. i wish you the best of
    luck. AND YES i can know justify your youtube absence;-)

  71. Fabrice Courdesses

    Gideon! You are always at the cutting edge for video marketers…may the
    force be with you “live video event” Yoda 😉

  72. Deon Minnie

    This will be Epic Gideon ! Will it replace Google hangouts, or even webinar
    jam that have its own intergration problems. 2 years in the making will
    make this worth the wait.

  73. Stan Gore

    I’m under the impression that to use YouTube Live you require encoding
    software, whereas the encoding function occurs automatically within the
    browser for Hangouts. Which encoding software do you use?

  74. AustralianAppStore

    Thanks Gideon, I can’t wait for your event, like always it will no doubt be
    awesome. G’day to Ya

  75. Gideon Shalwick

    Hey Stan – that’s correct – you need some extra encoding software for
    YouTube Live. The end result is a much higher quality video though. I’ll
    talk about my setup during the call :)

  76. Lance Gross

    I’d love to know the pros/cons of using YouTube vs other “live” events like
    Google Hangouts. ur timing as perfect as my headphone review channel is
    really picking up & so i’ll prob try this out! 😀

  77. Sylvs Reihana

    Wow can’t wait for this, I haven’t heard of this function so I’m excited to
    see how it goes. How do you keep in the loop with what’s happening, are you
    always researching new ways to video? Thanks.

  78. Gideon Shalwick

    Hah! How do I stay in the loop with what’s happening? I basically don’t
    sleep 😉

  79. Ron Hogue

    Multiple cameras – Would you recommend them for a live event? How would you
    manage them (what HW/SW allows you to choose what feed to use)?

  80. Ron Hogue

    Audio – Is there a separate audio feed? If so, how is it combined with
    video? Would you use a lapel or shotgun mic? How are you checking levels?


    Wow!!! The use of live video will change the way people and businesses
    market and advertise themselves forever!!!

  82. D Lancaster

    You’re right! Have not heard about this… New technology, it’s like
    hearing about that new flavor dipped ice-cream cone. Sounds really
    exciting, I’ll be there. ツ

  83. Daniel Looper

    is this really going to be live in 4 days 23 hours 5 min?

  84. Gideon Shalwick

    Yes – planning to run it 7pm EDT (USA)

  85. Gideon Shalwick

    Tuesday next week…

  86. Mike Smith

    I think live video is going to be a great tool for education. The one-many
    aspect would allow any kind of subject to be taught worldwide. Medicine,
    languages, the Arts just about any subject.

  87. Gideon Shalwick

    Hey Ronnie – it’s probably horses for courses… but I just like the
    increased level of control and quality you get with YouTube Live. Perhaps
    skating towards where the puck is going to be?

  88. D'Arcy Mayo

    Is there an option somewhere where scheduled live videos can be added to
    Google Calender? Or does the ‘Watch Later” button the way to go?

  89. Gideon Shalwick

    Hmmm not sure – that would be pretty cool!

  90. Julie Lewin

    Does it cost? What is difference between Live YouTube & Google Hangout? Can
    you record the Live event? Can you charge for Live events? Can it be
    private? Can you interact with viewers?

  91. ChreshFilms

    hey gideon bigfan

  92. ToGraphic4U

    Wow! I just, after a year, repaired my webcam! I was wondering if I could
    do anything Live via Youtube, and you bring this! I can’t miss it!!

  93. Gideon Shalwick

    It should be a lot of fun for sure! Fingers crossed my connection is solid!

  94. Susan Paget

    Hi Gideon — Thanks for this! I’ve got a Q re your mention of the challenge
    of broadcasting from Oz – I’m here too. Can you shed insight or tips for
    work arounds with broadcasting in slower locales?

  95. Crowdfunding Dojo

    Gideon – Do you have any backup plans for if your connection isn’t solid?
    That’s what I’d love to know how to mitigate against .

  96. Judy Langeveld

    Hey Gideon, I feel for you and your internet line. We in South Africa often
    get slowed down with similar issues. Have you alternatives just in case?

  97. cantero Gabby


  98. KupKakeKow

    HEEEEYYYY Wassup errbody

  99. Gordon Currie

    Looking forward to Gideon’s live event. Many of his techniques and
    suggestions have paid big dividends for my business. Best of all, I think
    he’s really genuine!

  100. Elle Tosolini

    I’m in Australia too Gideon and would love to know how to use YouTube to
    run live events. Surely it must be cheaper than the expensive options out

  101. Ferenc Fazekas

    Hey Gideon, I am excited to see the new opportunities with this function,
    and now understand why you were hiding in the bush lately. BEST OF LUCK

  102. J Lang

    Hello Gideon

  103. J Lang

    Hello Gideon. I happened to “stumble” upon the live video on the 22nd and
    played around. It would be great to your see what interesting nuggets you
    came up with custom settings, etc. See you then!!

  104. Rebecca Happy

    very much looking forward to what you have to say about live video
    streaming. +Derral Eves shared a bit with me a few months back. Great to
    see you so excited about the new changes and opportunities.

    you are live on my Google Stream – AWESOME!   Im re-sharing this after you are finished as few video influencers share their studio secrets.  Not too bad feed – it stopped for three seconds a couple times and i only have 6mbps speed with husband upstairs using the Wireless!  Hi, from Canada!

  108. Jane Gardner

    What a great idea for the Bamboo tablet – drawing live attached to the computer.  Awesome and of course, everyone has a laptop extra to be extra monitor – Great

  109. Jane Gardner

    Ride it all the way in to shore brother!

  214. Gillian Maxlow

    If you missed the LIVE Youtube video training by Gideon Shalwick this
    morning, head on over to Youtube now to view the recorded footage. Great
    info – equipment you need, how to setup your studio, additional software
    you could use, even a snapshot on how to get started with LIVE video.
    Totally inspiring and so easy! Guess my LIVE video’s coming soon ….

  215. Lily Kerns

    In looking to see the replay, there is a message that the video is not
    available for mobile. Something for you to check on for the future…
    Thanks for the info!

  216. Gillian Maxlow

    Gideon, thanks for answering my comment on the video hanging due to
    streaming – and in real time too. Your reply, right when I needed it, made
    a huge difference to the viewing experience :-)

    Hey Gideon…. thought I missed it on the time frame… glad to see you
    are just getting going…Hi from Taos, New Mexico USA

  219. Janet Beckers

    Hey Gideon. Not sure if you are live now or recorded? I’ve run a Google
    Hangout and embedded the youtube player on my webpages and it went well.
    Only hassle is the quality of the internet. Your quality looks awesome! How
    is this different to running a hangout and it playing through youtube?

  220. Fast Forward Fitness

    Great stuff thanks for sharing Gideon! I would say sound quality is really
    important, you can get away with poorer visual quality as long as the sound
    and obviously content is great.

  221. Daniel Looper

    as always Gideon Shalwick you rock! very cool stuff

  222. Claudia in Taos

    Your quality is awesome….. I am ready to try this… Thanks Gideon… You

    Hi Gideon, watching your first public LIVE on YouTube, from the start to
    the end.
    Great Job. Joining you from Bangkok, Thailand.

  229. Vlog Pod

    Great stuff Gideon. I caught the start of the stream on my iphone via 4g
    before presenting a workshop, and then caught up with the reply back in the
    office. I’m loving Youtube Live for my clients… preferred over hangouts
    due to the control I can bring.

  230. Sky Lou

    This was a great informative video, as always

  231. Derek Whitaker

    Hey Gideon – Great broadcast. Do you know if you can do a private
    streaming and not public on YouTube?

  232. ToGraphic4U

    I was so looking forward to this ever since you announced it, but today I
    felt ill so I took a nap and totally missed it! Thankfully I can watch it
    after the fact! I have been considering going live as well, especially now
    that I have my webcam fixed, but now I just have to think about what
    exactly I can do Live! You though just gave me more inspiration Gideon.
    Thank you!

  233. Dinos Magic

    I must say it was AWESOME!!!

    (From South Africa, by the way.)

  242. Gideon Shalwick

    Great stuff Jon! Thanks for the extra information! I will have a look at OBS! Sounds cool!

  243. Gordon Currie

    Greetings from northern Canada (Dawson Creek, BC)

  244. Gordon Currie

    The quality of the video and the sound is extremely clear here in Northern
    BC Canada! Not bad for halfway around the world!

  245. Gordon Currie

    This is the first time I have seen live video on YouTube. Impressive.
    Gideon, nice to be first!

  246. Jon Bowers

    If you get stuck with OBS I can highly recommend checking out their forums. There are lots of great guides and helpful people on there. Also because it is open source there are lots of plugins that will let you do extra stuff if you wanted. Some useful video guides on +Robin Hielscher YouTube channel as well.

  247. Gideon Shalwick

    Saweet thanks!

    of deal :)

  251. Manualideas Fancylooks

    Gideon, I really appreciate all the effort you give to all of us, you show
    that you really want us to learn to take the best advantage of YouTube. I
    am watching the presentation (finally I can find the time, yeah!!) and
    thinking about that, the info you share here is ready valuable, thank you
    very, very much.

  252. edenthedjguy

    Hey Gideon,
    I have just purchased the iGlasses app. When I try to record a video with
    photo booth I can’t use iGlasse in conjunction with my logitech camera.
    Question… How did you manage to do that?

  253. edenthedjguy

    Found it;-)  You can select the source/input camera on the iGlasses App by clicking on the settings cog icon on the top right of the interface.  Select your camera and BOOOM!

  254. howardpianoind

    Thanks for sharing this with us. Your content is good, but I have some
    constructive criticism if you’re open to it. I feel like you spend a lot
    of time talking about how excited you are about what you’re going to talk
    about before you actually get to the real content. Personally I find this
    frustrating because I want to accomplish more in a shorter period of time.
    These are just my personal thoughts. I do appreciate you sharing this
    information with all of us though.

  255. Gideon Shalwick

    Good feedback thank you! I'll try to be more to the point next time!

  256. S A Bokhari

    I can’t believe I watched this video to the end. Gideon you’ve done an
    exceptional job. 1:44:40!! I couldn’t leave you cos this video is very rich
    in value and it kept me watching till the end. Amazing contents! Thank You
    for bringing clarity in live events in youtube. Cheers!

  257. Web Video Chefs

    Congrats Gideon!!!

  258. Russ Johns

    Gideon, I’m curious where the wirecast app is available? I looked on
    YouTube and wasn’t able to find anything and did a quick search and was
    unable to discover the options you suggested in the video. Please let us
    know if there is a link.

    Thanks for the effort and look forward to learning more from your efforts.

  259. Russ Johns

    Thank you Sir!
    Great tips. I’ll be checking it out.
    I’m guessing you have to invite others after the launch?
    I wasn’t clear how to have a cohost on-air with the free version.

    I got wirecast running ok and still working on including my cohost.

    Thanks again,

  260. Anthony Hayes

    Great quality of video :)
    It is exciting!

  261. S A Bokhari

    Great Job! Cheers!

  262. gambitrocks

    Great video and studio tour. Logitech C920 = yummy. Btw have you noticed
    the delay between your broadcast, the stream and comments? The delay is
    normal with YouTube Live. Hopefully YouTube will work on lower latency
    delays (to test the delay, just film a clock with seconds. You will see the
    delay between your clock and the preview or live broadcast video.).

  263. Lucinda Schersing

    YaY!!! I will try to remember to ‘tune in’!!! I hope it goes well for you!
    Yes, I understand about your internet there in Australia. I have a friend
    in Melbourne and he has just a terrible time of it.

    This is truly exciting news Gideon!!! Good on ya! :)

  264. MakeUpButHow

    Hey Gideon, thank you for another wonderful video, I couldn’t watch the
    live event but I have watched it recorded and I am grateful for your
    helpful tips and the work you have put in this project. Thank you! :)

  265. Charleston Lifestyle Guide

    Gideon, is there a reason you use an external Logitech webcam instead of
    the built in Apple cam?

  266. Gideon Shalwick

    Yes! The main reason is because it gives me a bit more flexibility with positioning the camera where I want it, separate from my main computer that is doing the streaming. But to be 100% honest, I was only going to use my built in iSight camera, but then it would not work with the iGlasses software… so I hopped out to get the Logitech C920 and that make all the difference! Great little camera!

  267. Gideon Shalwick

    you're very welcome Elli! +MakeUpButHow Glad you found it useful!

    Hi Gideon, I love your videos!
    How did you manage/arrange and light the background?
    Best regards from Hamburg – Deutschland

  271. Gideon Shalwick

    I explain all that starting at 33:41

  272. Paul Dixon

    A fantastic session on You Tube live, Gideon! I picked up the recorded
    version but stayed till the end. You gave real encouragement to give this
    medium a try. Thank you.

  273. Otto Thompson

    Great video and advice when will you open back up the rapid vlog training?

  274. David Jansson

    How would you use background music? Does the software have ducking?

  275. Vladimir Tamy

    I learned some much from this video, thank you man on first class info! 😉

  276. Josh Rogers

    G, love it man. Been following you for 2 years now. Quick question: Is
    there a way to save the Live Video Stream RAW FILE NAME as a specific file
    so it will help youtube/google SEO? Versus the Raw File name showing a
    generic “live” file.

  277. Stan Faryna

    I liked the tech walk through. Yours is very impressive and represents a
    considerable and serious investment. $10,000 or more. It doesn’t have to be
    that expensive as you say, but I really enjoyed seeing your rig.

    We’re still working out the bugs on live streaming to multiple channels
    (Twitch, Allgames, etc) from several remote locations, but I think we got a
    great thing going. You might want to check it out – especially if you
    happened to be a Doctor Who fan.

    I’d like to see the “how to” aspect of this covered in 10-12 minutes.
    Provide a checklist that takes people from point A to point B so at the
    end, they’re operational.

  280. Astitva Entertainment

    Hi Gideon,

    Will you please tell me that how can I stream live videos on youtube? I mean to say, what are the technical instruments I need to do so, with least finance.

    It would be helpful, if you can provide with the equipment details and approx. price.


  281. Chris Huff

    great lighting. I use a three point lighting setup, super cheap and easy. Google for DIY three point lighting. I got in late so maybe you mentioned that.

  282. Jon Bowers

    Having done a lot of research into live video broadcasting over the last 18 months, I think you may have possibly spread some misinformation in this video. While YouTube Live is higher quality in that it can do 1080p, about a year ago Hangouts On Air was enabled to do 720p (which a lot of people will be wise to stick to unless you have a large upload).

    You can also use Wirecast via Hangouts as well. However I personally have found OBS (Open Broadcaster Software) to be better than Wirecast and it's also free (open source). However it doesn't currently iirc work for Hangouts but is fine for YouTube Live. Also Mac users will have to wait for the new in progress version of OBS Redux (there is currently an early Mac version named OBS multiplatform available). OBS is less processor intensive (same compared to Xsplit which is also popular though not free) which can be useful for a lot and has far more features than the free Wirecast for YouTube.

    A lot of the paid Wirecast features are also available using OBS (such as correcting mic delay), when the redux version finally gets released then I can't really see anyone getting Wirecast. Just to be clear I have no affiliation with any of these products, just a happy OBS user after trying both. Comparing OBS currently to the free Wirecast for YouTube and there is little contest imo. Though don't just take my word for it, check it out and use what works best for you!

    The only thing OBS doesn't currently have is scene previewing, though you can easily work around this setting up all your scenes before you start streaming / recording. The redux / OBS multiplatform will be adding this feature, along with the virtual camera feature needed to make it compatible with Hangouts.

    Also for this type of video the Question and Answer app for Hangouts may have been more suitable to use, I recommend people look into it. Also last week or so there was a new Showcase app for Hangouts that looks very useful for promoting products / services / websites alongside your live video.

    One last point that springs to mind is that if possible you really want to use a wired Ethernet connection rather than WiFi when you are streaming.

    Happy to answer any questions and share what I've learnt, it's a bit of a minefield out there currently and can be hard to pinpoint the information you are after.

  283. Nick Miller

    Was a great show (still going on) and looking forward to trying it myself.

    Thanks +Gideon Shalwick 

  284. Gideon Shalwick

    you're welcome Dinos!

  285. Gideon Shalwick

    The pro version of Wirecast allows you to delay the audio… which will sync it all up.

  286. Gideon Shalwick

    Haha well done!
